Cinnamon Vogue Tea: Two Antioxidants Unite In Deliciousness
We taste a lot of flavored tea, and find much of it to be, well, meh. Personally, we’d rather have really flavorful, top quality origin tea than lesser tea infused with flavors.
But we keep tasting, and sometimes we hit the jackpot, as with the outstanding Cinnamon Vogue Ceylon cinnamon tea.
Made with high quality (premium large leaf) Ceylon tea and Ceylon cinnamon bark oil*, it’s vastly superior to teas we’ve had that blend tiny pieces cinnamon bark with the tea leaves—as nifty as that looks—or flavored with other oils or extracts.
The “ultra premium cinnamon bark oil” used by Cinnamon Vogue, a Las Vegas-based importer, gives the tea a celestial aroma and a truly sophisticated cinnamon flavor.
Cinnamon Vogue tea has no other additives, and has zero calories. It’s delicious plain, so try it that way before adding milk or sugar.
At $12.00 per can (20 pyramid tea bags), it’s a wonderful holiday gift for just about everyone. Each bag is wrapped in a foil packet for freshness. One tea bag is strong enough to make two cups (which is true with all top quality tea).
The company also sells cinnamon sticks, cinnamon sugar, cinnamon leaf oil, cinnamon-flavored toothpicks and cinnamon-scented candles, along with combinations in gift packs.
Even Healthier Tea
Everyone knows that tea has antioxidants; so does cinnamon.
Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the dried inner bark of trees that belong to the genus Cinnamomum (here are the different types of cinnamon). Different varieties are native to the Caribbean, South America and Southeast Asia.
In the historic record, cinnamon has been consumed for its health benefits since about 2000 B.C.E. in ancient Egypt, where it was considered to be almost a panacea. Since then, it has been used as a curative in numerous situations; it is currently used to control blood sugar, to alleviate symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and to treat everything from fungal infections to Alzheimer’s Disease and HIV.
You should always verify health claims made by manufacturers with accredited scientific sources. Here’s the scoop from Medical News Today (note the study references in the footnotes).
About Ceylon Tea
Ceylon is the old colonial name for Sri Lanka, a tiny island off the coast of India. The black tea from the mountainous interior of the country has smooth flavor, medium body and a slightly fruity-honey finish. It is a favorite among black tea drinkers as a breakfast or afternoon tea. (Check out the different types of tea.)
In addition to growing tea, Ceylon is a source of the world’s finest cinnamon. How about that for a marriage made in heaven (or at least, in Sri Lanka)?

*Cinnamon bark oil is one of the most costly food oils in the world. There’s no oily residue or other evidence of oil—just great flavor.
